BMW car production in the US will resumeMay 1, 2020
It became known that the German automaker is going to resume the production of cars at its plant, which is located in Spartanburg in South Carolina.
This plant is the world’s largest assembly plant of BMW, with 11,000 employees. It is here that the company builds its models with the nameplate X, while about 70% of this volume is exported to about 125 global car markets. The process of resuming work will occur gradually, as the enterprise will operate at 50% capacity. The automaker is going to carefully evaluate customer demand and supply chain capacity.
“We do not cease to monitor global demand and plan to increase these figures depending on the situation,” the company representative said.
Initially, cars will be assembled using spare parts that are available in stock. The company plans to join Hyundai and Kia in the resumption of auto production in the United States.
